Maia Lynch's works are riddled with the absurd and poignant conditions determined by histories of geography, migration, sacrifice, survival, and painting. What occurs throughout is a process of assembling and disassembling, resulting in compositions that tensely cohere, yet prone to fragment.
Lynch received her MFA from the School of Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and her BA from Barnard College, Columbia University. Lynch’s work was selected in New American Paintings MFA Annual 2013. She was nominated for the Dedalus Award in Painting and awarded the Für Bildende Künste fellowship in Hamburg, Germany and the Dana Pond Award, Honorable Mention in painting. She is the recipient of the 2016 SMFA Alumni Traveling Fellowship.
